In Images of Savages, the distinguished psychologist Gustav Jahoda advances the provocative thesis that racism and the perpetual alienation of a racialized 'other' are a central leagacy of the Western tradition. Finding the roots of these demonizations deep in the myth and traditions of classical antiquity, he examines how the monstrous humanoid creatures of ancient myth and the fabulous "wild men" of the medieval European woods shaped early modern explorers' interpretations of the New World they encountered. Drawing on a global scale the schematic of the Western imagination of its "others," Jahoda locates the persistent identification of the racialized other with cannibalism, sexual abandon and animal drives. Turning to Europe's scientific tradition, Jahoda traces this imagery through the work of 18th century scientists on the relationship between humans and apes, the new racist biology of the 19th century studies of "savagery" as an arrested evolutionary state, and the assignment, especially of blacks, to a status intermediate between humans and animals, or that of children in need of paternal protection from Western masters. Finding in these traditional tropes a central influence upon the most current psychological theory, Jahoda presents a startling historical continuity of racial figuration that persists right up to the present day. Far from suggesting a program for the eradication of racial stereotypes, this remarkable effort nevertheless isolates the most significant barriers to equality buried deep within the Western tradition, and proposes a potentially redemptive self-awareness that will contribute to the gradual dismantling of racial injustice and alienation. Gustav Jahoda demonstrates how deeply rooted Western perceptions going back more than a thousand years are still feeding racial prejudice today. This highly original socio-historical contextualisation will be invaluable to scholars of psychology, sociology and anthropology, and to all those interested in the sources of racial prejudice.

Customer Reviews from Amazon.com Great writing, January 10, 2006 Reviewer: pollyanna "polly" (Florida) I had the good fortune of having received Florida,mon amour!as a Christmas gift.I was at once intrigued by its peculiar title. The story is fascinating and well-written. Florida,mon amour! has a truly original plot and the congruence of several foreign cultures and languages throughout the novel gives it a global panache. Mr. Mengibar has in effect broken the well-worn mold of the crime fiction and unrequited loves while showing us love in its various forms even the fake kind seasoned with unremitting greed. Florida, mon amour!, December 26, 2005 Reviewer: S. Bell "orange guy" (New York, NY) Florida, mon amour! is defintely not about Florida alone. It is about the United States, Spain, Sounth America, France and England. The convergence of their cultures and languages in this well-knit story gives it a fascinating glow of genuine originality and globality. It is difficult to put it down or to stop turning its pages as one is always expecting to find more titillating scenarios and peculiar situations. Love, death, greed, deception and an approriate denouement makes Florida, mon amour! one of the best novels I have read in recent years. A truly compelling,powerful and well-written story, December 11, 2005 Reviewer: Caribbean empress "Yvonne" (Florida) Florida,mon amour! is uniquely original not only in its plot but also in its development and harrowing denouement. Mr.Mengibar gets one's heart pumping frantically as you eagerly turn each page to see what will happen next. I fell in love with Raquel's rambunctious zest for life and her unfortunate fate, actually saddened me.An avid reader of fiction,I certainly recommend this wonderfully-paced,intriguing novel. You will hardly want to put it down.
